Bristol City (H) Match Preview

The Royals welcome Bristol City to the Mad Stad on Saturday, after Wednesday's fine win over Derby. It continues a run of 5 successive home games and Brian McDermott's side will be looking to continue the impressive home form. A full match preview is here....

Vital Quotes:

Royals inform striker Shane Long -

'We`re looking good on the pitch and seem to be playing with a bit of ease and playing some good football and we need to keep doing that. The manager has given us some confidence, he brought most of us to the club and knows what we`re about. I`m feeling good on the pitch and I want to score more goals to bring my tally up before the end of the season.'


Goalkeeper Adam Federici -

'The Derby game was bizarre from start to finish and the three points are fantastic when you look at how tight the league is right now.'

Reading Team News:

The Royals have slight doubts over Andy Griffin and Matt Mills but both should be ok to take their places in the side. Zurab Kizhanishvili stands by but could be made to sit on the bench once more.

Jobi McAnuff returns from suspension but is unlikely to start due to Jimmy Kebe's wonderful form.

Player to watch: Jay Tabb

Tabb has been the Royals star performer in recent matches and has formed an excellent partnership with Brian Howard in the middle of midfield.

Bristol City Team News:

The Robins travel to the Mad Stad with a number of injury concerns including Evander Sno, Marvin Elliot and Jamie McCombe. On loan striker Patrick Agyemang is struggling with a groin injury but Jamie McAllister returns to the side.

Player to watch: Chris Iwelumo

On loan Wolves striker scored a brilliant goal to sink Crystal Palace on Tuesday night and will be keen to continue his partnership with Nicky Maynard.

Last Meeting

Saturday 19th December 2009, Bristol City 1-1 Reading

Match Prediction:

The Royals are on fire at home at the moment, however it is clear this will be a tough game. Bristol City always enjoy a trip the Madejski Stadium and I think a point will be a good result.

Next Fixture:

Tuesday 16th March 2010, QPR (H)
